Line was not to long and it goes by fast. What takes time is that you need to pass though security. If you are in philly you cannot pass up a chance to see this free piece of our history.

This bell is an iconic symbol in the U.S. history. It was part of many major events that shaped the U.S. history and forever, changed its density. I enjoyed learning about the bell. Do not forget to capture few photos with this historical bell :) also be ready go through security check and metal detector before getting in.

We loved seeing the room where the founding of our country happened. Go early in the day to get your free ticket for the tour, it will have a time to come back later in the day, of you don’t you may not get in!

Interesting visit to know and understand more the independence of USA, however, do not expect a great place with many options. It is common and nice to see when your around in Philadelphia. Visit is free!

I went on a Friday afternoon and it wasn’t that busy, but Saturday afternoon there was a super long line just to get into the building. The museum is free and the liberty bell is very cool to see in person. I would recommend going during the week vs the weekend.
